Formed in 1823, the Royal Asiatic Society concerns itself with furthering the understanding of cultures from across Asia, from the Former Ottoman Empire and the Caucases to India, Persia, Japan, China and those parts of Africa most affected by Asian culture.

Edward Weech, Librarian with the Royal Asiatic Society, shines a bright light on the particular considerations for managing a linguistically diverse, multi-format archive and how the Royal Asiatic Society is rising to meet these needs. He shares fascinating insights into not only the history of the Society but also European attitudes in the 18th and 19th century towards Asian culture.
